RE: Windows 10, Memory leaks, solved, Alienware 17-R3
I had the exact same issue with an Area 51 R2. I could not go 24 hours without hitting 98% used RAM. Sometimes within 6 hours. I finally did a full format and reinstall of Win 10. The issue has not recurred.
I now have win 10 on a USB drive. All the Dell downloads for my machine on another drive and rdy if it happens again.
